As promised, even when belated, here are my recent (if we can pretend nearly a month is recent *cough*) buys from the sales that are now already over as shops prepare to bring in spring/summer collections.
I found pieces for some pretty good deals and that one dress I had given up all hope I would ever own.
Sales can be magical - or disappointing (considering your fav pieces are mostly only available in sizes 40 and up). Mine was rather bargainius.
Actually, these shoes embody everything I hate about shoes. Extra pointy with (this is even worse, a shoe being one or the other of these issues for me is bad enough already) a sad excuse of a heel, that is nor heel nor flat. I'm not really someone for inbetweeners. My brother already laughs (yes, he still does) at me for buying these shoes, I can understand why.
But I thought they looked cute (at that point I hadn't notice the wannabe heel!) and would look great with blue jeans.
Once realizations hits how much I actually do hate them, I'll just sell them on. They'll most probably be in a "used once"-state. But for 10 bucks it's a good deal for trying out something new.
I might just be riding into my personal fashion fail.
I love my new summer shoes. For a really stupid reason though I now own two pairs of them of which only one fits. Okay here is the story in a nutshell: I bought these pair in a size 38 not bothering to try them on. When I got home they didn't fit. But the next day I feared they'd sell out, so after school I stopped by Zara and they were still available in size 39 which I took home with me and figured I'll bring back the old pair on the weekend. But I brought back the old pair with the new receipt by mistake and sales girl didn't accept it. And just as the story most go naturally I lost the original receipt. Now I'm stuck with two pairs. Yeee-haa NOT.
I remember thinking "Bitch please, who even checks the size?! They are the SAME MODEL + COLOR = SHOE!" quickly followed with a "FUUUUUUUUUU!!!!"when I realized she seriously wasn't going to take them back. At this point I was only pissed because I had to carry the shoes with me - I was going to meet Carlinka afterward - I had no idea there was no second receipt to bring them back. So does anyone want them? Size 38, 20€ and they're yours.
Neon Polishes. Totally love them! They were about 1,50€. Sadly the camera fails to capture the true colors of the polishes. They are much for neon in reality.
When I spotted this dress: *haaa-lee-lu-yah, halle luh ya, halle lu yah!* angels singing and playing their harps, spotlight from heaven on 'that one' dress, followed by me trampling all the way across the store to that rack. Dress: size 36. Angels begin singing again, this time louder, music reaches its crescendo.
I should have thrown my hands up to demonstrate my inner state. This would have probably been met with really weird glares by my fellow H&M Trend shoppers. Oh well, I still mentally went "haaa-lee-lu-yah, halle luh ya, halle lu yah!"
I have been looking for a fur coat for a long time now. When I saw it had been reduced to 40€ I decided I was going to check it out at a Zara store and buy it. Originally I set out to buy the black coat and the fur one each 40€, but in Zara the were costing only 20€. Faced with a color picking dilemma I choose the black coat also in camel and on my way to the cash desk I found that open fur coat, also 20€.
I'm having second thoughts on the fur coat though, mainly because I look like a miniature yeti in it. Can't return it, it was also on the 'original' receipt. Yes, the one from the true life story above.
Jacket: Zara. But you've already seen this one on the blog :)
Bought three new blushes for ca. 7,50€ from Rival de Loop at Rossmann, because it was 20%-off Rival De Loop Week. They are scented! :D
1. 05 apricot blush 2. 07 red blush 3. 08 terracotta blush
New summer scarves dotted one from H&M and the other is from Zara which was on sale for 10€.
Hair ring (yesssirrrr! Mission accomplished! Although it is not quite the original hair ring, yet still from H&M) and my favourite new metal bow hair ties. Both H&M.
I did not find the COS necklace or the Mango belts I announced on twitter I was going to pick up from the sale. They were sold out when I got there. Sadly no luck.
But I'm quite content with what I got. What's your favourite thing I bought?
